Forgotten Military Facilities

I remember I read somewhere a very interesting quote by Bertrand Russell. I think it goes like this: “War does not determine who is right, only who is left“. And also what is left. Abandoned war installations, military bases above or under the ground, old hospitals can be considered the perfect eyeglass for the not necessarily sad past, but for an interesting and captivating world – fighting techniques, war medical practices, use of buildings, weapons.

Some facilities are no more than simple structures, but still able to say a lot about people of that time and their beliefs, condition and possibilities. Others are real wonders, architectural masterpieces… Let’s take a tour around the world. 🙂
